Tamil Nadu’s R Naveen set a national junior record in 600m race en route to his second gold of the meet on the second day of the 25th National Inter-Zone Junior Athletics Championships here today.

Naveen, who had missed the national mark yesterday while taking 100m sprint title by just three hundredth of a second, today shattered Haryana boy Puneet Chauhan’s 600m national record (1:24.54) as he led the field from start to finish in one minute 23.22 secs.

Tamil Nadu continued to lead the points table while Maharashtra and Kerala occupied the next two spots at the end of day two. Two Maharashtra athletes — Sumit Kumar Jaiswal (400m hurdles) and Amolak Singh (Octathlon) — bettered meet records as in the youth boys’ category.

Jaiswal, who represented India at World Youth Championships in Donetsk (Ukraine), clocked a personal best of 53.81 secs to win the 400m hurdles that improved state-mate Satish S Pasala’s last year’s performance by 0.05 secs.

Amolak Singh, who hails from Punjab but representing Maharashtra here, made a gallant effort to better his Army Sports Institute team-mate Dileep Kumar’s national record in the eight-event Octathlon.
